Testing Safari for Windows...

I'm typing this on the Windows version of Safari. It seems fast and friendly so far, and much like the Mac version (which truth to tell I rarely use, preferring Camino), although it seems to play better with Blogger.

Let me try a couple of things...

Hi Neil,
Being a man in the know, I am am sure you are aware of McSweeney's distributor going bankrupt and McSweeney's auction and book sale effort to pull themselves up by their boot straps.

As soon as the news hit my in-box I set off on a shopping trip to show my support and of course add to my beloved book stacks. Would you give the whole business a mention?

:) Your most humble "Swapped My Dad For Two Goldfish" fiend, niki

Of course. First of all, anyone interested should go and read It tells you what's happening at McSweeney's.
Then go and visit the McSweeney's Store --
And if you don't know what to buy, you could get one of these for $5 (amazingly cheap! amazingly wonderful!)
And for the cost of a new paperback, you could own your own copy of The Riddle of the Traveling Skull, Harry Stephen Keeler's sort of masterpiece.

I wonder why the fonts have got all screwy. (NB -- it actually wasn't readable around there, once it was posted, with lines going off the edge of the page and vanishing, so I had to go into Blogger in Explorer and fix it.) (And then go back in and fix it again because that Safari formatting was really squonky.)

I should post a picture, shouldn't I? (Looks at desktop to see what's sitting there and postable.)

Well, I tried to post a photo of a Deliriumish tattoo I drew a few years ago for a lady named Cat (not my assistant Cat, a different one), because it's been sitting on my desktop for ages and I keep meaning to put it up. And no window to upload pictures appeared, nothing happened except the fonts seemed to get odder. Not sure if the fault is Blogger's or Safari's, but there isn't a picture in this post.


(NB: to add, fifteen minutes after this was posted, a Blogger "Upload picture" window appeared.)
